Keep Up Shut Up is a podcast inspired by the golf stars of yesteryear and is hosted by Tony Rushmer and Mike Morley, who caddie on the European Senior Tour – now called the Legends Tour.
Episode 6 - Lunch with the Legends
For our latest episode, Mike and Tony went to the hallowed Wentworth Club for the launch of The Legends Tour. We spoke with some of the Tour’s biggest stars – Ian Woosnam, Paul McGinley and Paul Lawrie – as well as the driving force behind the new circuit Ryan Howsam. It’s a fascinating listen as we discover Ryan’s new vision for senior pro tour golf and we hear the players’ enthusiasm, embracing the future. Bring on the Legends Tour!
Episode 5 - Roger in the room
For the latest episode, Mike Morley and Tony Rushmer were delighted to be joined by special guest Roger Chapman. As well as the lowdown on his twin triumphs in Senior majors in 2012, we rewind through the decades to chat about the 1981 Walker Cup in which Roger claimed a sizeable scalp. Talking of scalps, Roger recalls an interesting hair transplant experience that one of his great Tour friends had! He also reveals details from a recent painful cycling trip and gives his thoughts on a bunch of other subjects, including record-breaking Miguel Angel Jimenez. Meanwhile, find out how Mike’s summer showdown at Prince’s with ‘Pistol’ Peter Wilson went…
Episode 4 - Meet Macca and Shackers
We’re joined in our latest episode by two superb guests with very different stories to tell. First up is long-term European Tour caddie Brendan McCartain, who was on the bag when Jose Maria Olazabal won the Masters in 1999. Brendan was also alongside the Spaniard in the Ryder Cup at Brookline – and was right there when Justin Leonard holed that putt to trigger those controversial scenes. We find out from Brendan whether the celebrations really did spill over onto the line of Ollie’s subsequent putt. Plus, we’re joined by David Shacklady, who has risen from the PGA North region circuit to become one of the best players on the Staysure Tour. David never had a European Tour card but is proof that life begins at 50, having bagged three senior tour titles in two superb seasons. He also reveals his prowess for another sport in an engaging and entertaining chat with Keep Up Shut Up hosts Mike Morley and Tony Rushmer.
